This event has ended.

Casey Kaplan presents the first solo exhibition in New York of Los Angeles-based artist, Lecia Dole-Recio. Since 2001, Dole-Recio has been redefining two-dimensional abstraction through an exploration of positive and negative space by means of reduction. Using stencils as her methodology, she presents vibrant new paintings and collages on paper in Gallery III.
Dole-Recio’s abstractions evoke the work of Robert and Sonia Delaunay and Orphic Cubism (or sometimes referred to as Simultaneism), a style of painting related to Cubism that is characterized by overlapping planes of contrasting colors. In this exhibition, Dole-Recio’s palette is brilliant and rich; hot reds, blush pinks, maroons, blues, blacks and golds fill the gallery space. Traditionally employing the use of cardboard, tape, and other collaged elements into many of her works, here Dole-Recio focuses on painting. Each work repeats a mostly geometric motif that is hand cut and put down. Then left or removed, the shapes are obscured by gestural, emotive strokes or portrayed as remnants in paint.
